Sanders surges as progressives flock to him over Warren

Politico

The consolidation of left-wing support is a remarkable turnaround for Sanders.

IOWA CITY, Iowa — Something’s happening with Bernie Sanders that looked unlikely to many a few months ago: Progressive leaders and organizations are lining up behind him, not Elizabeth Warren, in the lead-up to voting.

Two groups run by young people — the Sunrise Movement, which seeks to combat climate change, and Dream Defenders, which advocates for people of color — endorsed him last week. He’s also won the backing of People’s Action and the Center for Popular Democracy, which together claim more than 1.5 million members, as well as three lawmakers in the so-called “Squad” and liberal-minded labor unions.

The consolidation of left-wing support is a remarkable turnaround for Sanders. In September, the Working Families Party became the first major national progressive group to endorse a candidate when it picked Warren — despite siding with Sanders in 2016. Warren was surging at the time, and looked poised to overtake Sanders as the leader of the progressive movement and a frontrunner for the nomination.

But now it’s Sanders with the wind at his back. The endorsements, on display here Sunday when Rep. Rashida Tlaib and the Sunrise Movement joined him for a rally attended by more than 900 people, are giving him a jolt of momentum weeks ahead of the Iowa caucuses and supplying him with fresh volunteers in key areas.

1. On what is this so-called "surge" based? We see that word a lot, but not much movement in the polls.

6. I like this poll. But doesn't seem to fit what we have been hearing the last couple days.

 

Seems almost surreal. But, this is a legitimate poll, so ya, where is the surge?

I watch the polls but I see so many different things in them, that I am really just waiting for the votes.

3. I'm worried, however...

 

...because Bernie has started attacking Elizabeth and Joe. Which means he surging? But if he's surging, what's up with those attacks?

Hmmm...or is Elizabeth starting to surge past Bernie again, and his internal polling shows that? So now it's both attack-time and get-the-media-to-claim-it's-Bernie-surge-time?

4. joe

 

I going to vote for Joe in primary. I think any of the democratic candidates for president would do better than what we have at present. The democrats couldn't nominate a more corrupt candidate than what we have at present.
A democratic president said," you need to govern toward the middle", and I believe that statement is correct. Just my opinion.

5. ...

 



Warren's supporters are "flocking" nowhere. We are supporting the best candidate. We know it AND we are as persistent as she is.

But nice try, Politico!
